Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
The movie “Anonymous” has been causing little stir with its emphasis on William Shakespeare, insisting that he did not write all those plays in silence.
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says that’s not too surprising since this is a question that has been raised too often to be effective.
Besides, he adds, there are plenty of other notable heroes to draw attention. And, he cites such wide-ranging examples as Abraham Lincoln, Babe Ruth and the mythical Little Drummer Boy Johnny Shiloh.
However, Sokolsky says there may be a way to salvage such tales. Simply get a good writer to rearrange them a little.
And, what do you think, he asks? If somebody went through the belongings of a certain long-dead author, might they be able to come up with just such a story?
